Good evening, thanks for the question
Menopause is the cessation of menstrual cycles that occur within one consecutive year. The average age of menopause for a woman is 51 years old, but the range is 45-55 years. The condition before menopause is called perimenopause where this phase can last for 10 years. During the perimenopause hormone levels are so unstable that they cause changes in the menstrual cycle.
As long as normal menstruation still occurs, the hormones estrogen and progesterone will fluctuate with a clear pattern that remains. But this does not occur in the perimenopause phase, so that symptoms can appear irregular cycles and spotting or spots. Several months of bleeding can occur and many long cycles, then followed by very little bleeding and short cycles. Can also occur there is no menstrual cycle for some time.
Every woman can feel different experiences with each other. Likewise in this condition, a very irregular menstrual cycle is likely the period leading up to menopause.
In addition to menstrual cycle disorders, other symptoms that can be felt include:
- Hot flashes or hot sensation on the face
- Sweat at night
- Sleep disturbance
- memory loss
- The vagina feels dry
- Decreased sexual desire
But still must be aware of if you experience abnormal bleeding if you experience complaints such as:
- Bleeding so much that it appears symptoms of weakness, pale, or tightness.
- Bleeding a lot more than 3 weeks.
- Bleeding after sexual intercourse.
If you experience the above, you should consult an obstetrician to find out if there are disorders of the reproductive organs.
That's all, hope you can help
